Speak your truths clearly
To find your passion, you must speak your truths and prepare yourself for new adventures. Finding your passion begins with you answering these questions.
Q. What really matters to you?
Speak your truths clearly
Q. What drives you crazy?
Q. What do you do best?
Q. And what makes you feel complete?
Once you begin challenging your mind with these questions, your mind will provide the answers and once you have figured out the answers, you are on your way to finding your passion.

Be open for support
You must also keep in mind that you are not an isolated being. Sometimes in life, it takes external influence and inspiration to find your passion. Therefore you need the support of family, friends and positive minded social circle that will help you reach your goals.

Keep an open mind
You need to keep an open mind to find your passion. When you open up your senses, you tend to experience God’s blessings and you feel more peaceful and serene. This allows you to be more patient and be reminded the cycle of nature. When you experience this, you become more positive and calm.
Keeping an open mind allows you to observe your environment and how it relates to you. One thing you must note is this you might not be the one to discover your passion. Someone else might and you need an open mind to take note of such. Observe the traits and talent you possess that your friends and family admire a lot.
For instance, Debbi Fields was constantly praised by her family and friends because of her ability to bake delicious cookies and she was able to respond positively to those compliments by starting a business around that passion.
If Debbi Fields hadn’t kept an open mind, I don’t think Mrs. Field’s Cookies will be in existence today.

Give yourself a time for pleasure
How do you feel waking up in the morning away from busy schedules and having the freedom to do the things that bring you pleasure? Well, following your passion can put you in such state of mind and lifestyle.
To find your passion, you must allow yourself a time for pleasure. For many people, allowing pleasures induces guilt as they tend to feel it is not productive and hinders you from getting important things accomplished. But this view of pleasure is actually a matter of opinion.
Gentle pleasures are good to your health and are productive. By allowing yourself time for pleasure, you become more focused and passionate in your job. Most importantly, you will have the right aura to decide what’s best for you and what your passion is.
A person who finds his or her passion is a truly wise person. Doing a work that reflects your personality and values promises you a lifelong happiness and contentment. It is easier and liberating when we accept who we are and we allow other people to accept us too. The human psyche is a holistic system, to numb one part of our being is to numb the rest and create constant struggle.
[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]Remain true to yourself and your philosophy. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]
To be able to discover and harness your passion, you must accept and appreciate who you are. I have seen people with talents that seem weird to others I have also seen people with gifts that are psychic in nature but they get rejected by the society.
Feed yourself with affirmations
Positive affirmations are important to finding your passion in life as it makes you feel secure and optimistic about reaching your goals. A lot of people don’t get to their destinations out of fear of failure.
You should not allow yourself to get upset by some downturns in life instead, pull yourself together and get on track again.
Some people might influence you into thinking negatively. It may not be so easy to shut them out of your life but it’s easier to practice blocking the negative energies that they bring into your life it keeps your sanity.
Never ever allow cynics and naysayers get the best of you. Remember, you are unique and you have a purpose or mission here on earth so it’s up to you to find this purpose.
As a final note, you should know that finding your passion is an endless song an ever going process. You don’t just find your passion and sit there instead, you find your passion and make something worthwhile out of it.

When you do the things that you are passionate about, you allow your life to flourish. You let yourself connect to everything you are – in mind, in heart, and in spirit.
